Defective Products

Every day we use products and services that are intended to improve our lives in some way. Whether the things we consume are for entertainment, pure enjoyment or a more serious purpose, we are entitled to expect that certain standards of safety have been met.

Never before have consumers in the UK had so much legal protection. If products you buy or services you use fall below the legal standard and injury results, there is a good chance you are entitled to compensation.

This is because the Consumer Protection Act enacted in 1987 places a strict legal burden on anyone who sells items anywhere in Europe: If a product is defective, the producer is liable — it's as simple as that.

Compared with most other types of personal injury claims where liability has to be proved before compensation is payable, defective product claims are often easier to establish.

Even if you think your case is weak, contact us: We will give you a quick, free assessment. If we decide we can help you get compensation, we will act on a no-win, no-fee basis.
